Oh My


Ladies, can I ask for more prayers? Please keep them coming. My Dad suffered a small stroke today (exactly one week after Juergen's accident) and was ambulanced to the same hospital in Ottawa. They are keeping him in for a week. The out patient procedure he had last Friday involved stopping and restarting his heart. That seemed to go well until this happened today. He has no feeling in his left hand but they think it will come back.


I love my Dad with all of my heart and just want him to get better. His 77th birthday is on Monday.


So again, thank-you so much ladies for holding me and my hubby up in your prayers this past week. I can truly feel it and am overwhelmed by the care and compassion. I am throwing out the biggest cyber hug to you all.

Oh Joy ~ more trauma for your family. . . . I KNOW our dad is strong and he'll come out of this. . . . I'm headed to Mass this morning and will surely say a special prayer for your father. You are truly a lucky family to have him in your life, my dad died almost 10 years ago very suddenly at 68. . . honestly, I still think of him nearly every day, and miss him. . . . much love to you, my Canadian friend xoxoxox P

You still now the dutch saying; een ongeluk komt nooit alleen? an accident sure never walks alone, you guys really suffer rough times. Sending good vibes your way, sorry that you'll have to wait for the soup recipes, due to circumstances I haven't been able to translate them yet, I'm ashamed but I do think a lot of you. All the best and warm wishes xo

Absolutely! My heart goes out to you and your family. You have had a frightening week, and I am so relieved to hear your husband was fortunate enough to have not been more injured than he was. That truly was a miracle!

I am hoping that your father has a speedy recovery, and is back home where he belongs very soon.

Much love,
Linda

Oh my goodness, Joy...I am just now catching up and see that you have had a rough couple of weeks. I will certainly remember your dad, your husband and your entire family in my prayers. Asking God, for a speedy and complete healing for 2 of the MOST important men in your life.

Sending you warm ((((hugs))), too. How's your mom? You told me she might have to have an angiogram...I take it from your post if she did she is re-couping well.

Blessings...along w/many prayers...
